Commonly Asked Questions

How Much Does Dentist Teeth Cleaning Cost?

The dental scale and clean cost varies and is determined by how much cleaning your teeth require. Give us a call for more information on the teeth cleaning cost at our Melbourne clinic.

Is a Dental Scale and Clean Necessary?

Yes. Receiving regular teeth cleaning at our Melbourne clinic is necessary to remove all the plaque on your teeth, especially the plaque you might tend to miss when you brush and floss your teeth at home.

How Often Should You Receive Dental Cleaning?

How often you should undergo a dental scale and clean procedure depends on your oral health. People who brush and floss their teeth several times a day may only need to get a teeth scale and clean once a year. However, people with poor oral hygiene tend to quickly accumulate calculus and should receive dentist teeth cleaning at least twice a year.

Does a Dental Scale and Clean Hurt?

Dental scaling can be an uncomfortable procedure, especially for people with sensitive gums. Your dentist can numb the gum tissue with local anaesthesia to stop you from feeling any pain. The whole cleaning procedure might be completed in a single visit, although your dentist may divide the procedure into four separate appointments. Your mouth will feel numb and tender afterwards.
